Terry Francona keeping Cody Allen as Cleveland closer, Andrew Miller in setup role

Andrew Miller may be the Cleveland Indians’ best reliever, but he won’t be closing games for them to start 2017.Manager Terry Francona said Saturday that Cody Allen remains the team’s closer, with Miller and Bryan Shaw serving as the bridge to get leads to the 9th inning. At first glance, this looks odd, but the Indians have great bullpen depth and are taking full advantage...

Cleveland Indians fans have a complicated relationship with Bryan Shaw

Just when Indians fans think Bryan is the One, he breaks their hearts again. Will they? Won't they? Oh, Bryan. We want to adore you. We gave you our hearts after a long streak of scoreless appearances. You tossed them into a KitchenAid mixer and splattered them all over the new granite countertops. Then, you tried to bake it into a nice pie, but you burned the house down, which...

The Shaw Supremacy: What if Bryan Shaw became a super soldier?

How good would he be if he then continued to pitch for the Indians? What if he could also time travel? In previous installments of this series, I've asked some important questions. What if Bryan Shaw pitched every single inning for the Indians? What if we clone Bryan Shaw until he filled every single roster spot in the league? Now, I'd like to ask the most interesting one yet: what...

Indians avoid arbitration with reliever Bryan Shaw

CLEVELAND (AP) The Indians avoided salary arbitration with reliever Bryan Shaw by agreeing to a one-year, $2.75 million contract for next season with the steady right-hander.

A Perfect Match: Bryan Shaw and the Indians

Bryan Shaw’s Late Season Malfunctions

On Thursday night, Bryan Shaw blew a hold (technically a blown save) in an effort reminiscent of two blown saves last year against Detroit (except that this game didn’t matter). Shaw has been a work horse for the Tribe during the last three seasons, setting the Indians record for appearances in 2014 (and leading the league) and pitching in at least 70 games every season. While...

Shaw Sets Up Strong Returning Indians Bullpen

No pitcher in Major League Baseball made it into games more than Bryan Shaw did for the Cleveland Indians in 2014. For the 27-year-old reliever, it was a glowing recommendation of his value to Terry Francona that the Indians skipper could rely on Shaw whenever he made the call. And for what it is worth, Shaw proved his importance time and time again in each of his two seasons as...

Mariners 6, Indians 5: Comeback thwarted by Shaw’s hanger

When you score five runs, you should win the game. The Indians were on their way to doing so last night, but one of their more reliable and consistent pitchers made two quick mistakes and a comeback victory was snatched away as the Seattle Mariners took the rubber match of the three-game series, 6-5, on the same day the Indians traded their starting shortstop and failed to bring...

Which Bryan Shaw Will Appear to Begin 2014?

The Cleveland Indians open the 2014 season with new expectations despite many questions. The Indians’ 25-man roster will look different than the group that won 92 games and lost the American League Wild Card game to the Tampa Bay Rays. While the roster may change and the expectations grow, Cleveland will need answer many questions this spring before opening the season in Oakland...
